CBR Clinics offer exceptional Paediatric Osteopathy across our specialist clinics in Waterloo, Southwark (SE1) and Canary Wharf, South Quay (E14). Our specialists take a holistic approach to Paediatric Osteopathy and treat each and every patient on an individual basis.  We use manual, non-invasive techniques to restore, maintain, and support the well-being of newborns, infants and children under the age of 16 years.

Your First Paediatric Osteopathy Treatment

Our treatment of a newborn begins with treatment of the mother’s body to facilitate a trauma-free birth and optimum growth. If the birthing process follows an optimum sequence of compressions, rotation and expansion, it will mean minimal trauma for the mother and baby.

Treatment using the Cranial Osteopathy approach at CBR Clinics is very gentle, safe and effective when treating babies.

What is Paediatric Osteopathy?

Paediatric Osteopathy is the diagnosis and treatment for a wide range of medical conditions for patients under the age of 16. Paediatric Osteopathy follows a holistic approach and is formulated on the principle that the welfare of an individual depends on the skeleton, muscles, ligaments and connective tissues working in conjunction with each other.

During labour and delivery of a newborn, both mother and child can experience enormous amounts of structural and physiological changes. These changes can potentially lead to difficulties later in life for the mother and the baby. Paediatric Osteopathy treatments pre-birth can help to prevent or reduce the impact of any changes through gentle, manipulative treatment, allowing the safest birthing process for both.

Paediatric Osteopathy is also an effective treatment for newborns, infants and children up to the age of 16 as it aids the bodies structural development process.

Please note that all patients under 16 years old must be accompanied by a parent or responsible adult during all consultations. All our therapists are DBS checked.
